Run macro within selected cell range

  • I recorded the following macro for conditional formatting and it works great within the current selected cell range that starts at row 13. What do I need to add/change to run it depending on the selection since the range may vary? Thank you.

  • Re: Run macro withing selected cell range


    You may try something like this....


    Code
    1. Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
    2. "=IF(COUNTA(" & Selection.Cells(1).Address(0, 2) & ")=1,MOD(SUBTOTAL(3," & Selection.Cells(1).Address(2, 0) & ":" & Selection.Cells(1).Address(0, 2) & "),3)=0,0)"
    3. Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    4. With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
    5. .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    6. .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
    7. .TintAndShade = -0.249946592608417
    8. End With
    9. Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = True

    Thank you, sktneer_1,


    but this change also highlights the every 3rd column. I need to highlight only every 3rd row, not columns. Any thoughts?

    I only applied your formula in the code depending upon the selected range.
    If it's not producing the desired output, please check your formula.

    I understand it and appreciate your help. It works perfectly within any selected data range except that it started to change the colors of the columns in addition to rows. I'm not an expert and don't know which part of the formula changes the columns color. Thanks in advance for any suggestions/hints/direction.

    One more thing- I'm using it for the table with hidden cells to change the color of every third row of active data.

    See if this is what you are trying to achieve...

    Code
    1. Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
    2. "=IF(COUNTA(" & Selection.Cells(1).Address(0, 2) & ")=1,MOD(SUBTOTAL(3," & Selection.Cells(1).Address(1, 1) & ":" & Selection.Cells(1).Address(0, 2) & "),3)=0,0)"
    3. Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    4. With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
    5. .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    6. .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
    7. .TintAndShade = -0.249946592608417
    8. End With
    9. Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = True
